♫ The Music ♫
My Lagan Love is set to a traditional Irish air. The second verse, often omitted by performers, speaks of Leamh-beag - believed to be a small village along the River Lagan.

Leamh Beag is one of three hats in the Leamh series.

It is a cabled beanie-style hat. It is worked bottom up with easy 1/1 and 2/2 cables. The ribbed nature of the fabric makes it very ‘springy’ – it will stretch up to 3” / 7.5cm in circumference.

Both charts and written directions for charts are provided.

Other hats in this series:
• Leamh Ard
• Leamh Mor

Finished circumference: 18 (20, 22)” / 45.5 (51, 56)cm.

190 - 230 yards (174 - 210 m) in Fingering weight
